Isn't it Strange......

Isn't it strange
how a 20 dollar bill
seems like such a large amount
when you donate it to church,
but such a small amount when you go shopping?

Isn't it strange how
2 hours seem so long
when you're at church,
and how short they seem when you're watching a good movie?

Isn't it strange that
you can't find a word to say when you're praying
you have no trouble
thinking what to talk about with a friend?
Isn't it strange
how difficult and boring
it is to read one chapter of the Bible
but how easy it is
to read 100 pages of a popular novel?
Isn't it strange
how everyone wants front-row-tickets
to concerts or games
but they do whatever is possible
to sit at the last row in Church?
Isn't it strange
how we need to know about an event for Church
2-3 weeks before the day
so we can include it in our agenda,
but we can adjust it for other events
in the last minute?
Isn't it strange
how difficult it is
to learn a fact about God
to share it with others;
but how easy it is to learn, understand, extend
and repeat gossip?
Isn't it strange
how everyone wants a place
in heaven but...
they don't want to believe, do, or say anything
to get there?
Isn't it strange
how we believe everything
that magazines and newspapers say but....
we question
the words in the Bible?

Isn't it strange
how we send jokes in e-mails and they are forwarded right away but when we are going to send messages about God, we think about it twice before we share it with others?

Now that you've read this message,
will you forward it to anybody?


  1. unfortunatley very true. Thanks for the thought. Have read this before but need to thnk about PRIORITIES often!!!!!

  2. Wow that really seems to ring true. And Yes scary. Do you have any thoughts on Virtue?

  3. Thanks for the reminder...I am guilty of some of those things. That's why there is always tomorrow!
